Superior Industries Inc, the US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, has manufactured the first ever 64 m road-portable telescoping radial stacking conveyor. This TeleStacker® Conveyor, designed and built for a frac sand operation in Texas, is the longest one of its kind ever built.
The conveyor has a stockpiling capacity of 363,000 t, 30% more than any other telescoping conveyor on the market. According to Superior, the company’s solution is less than half the cost of a fixed or stationary tripper conveyor with the same capacity. In addition to high capacity frac sand applications, operations that may benefit from a longer unit include sites that need to build inventory with large tonnage stockpiles and shipload applications. A 64 m telescopic conveyor will fill a vessel hold more completely than shorter models.
